Oh so thankful...

Ok, so these pictures are out of order. Oh well. Our Thanksgiving was great. It was only the four of us but it was still a lot of fun. Here is what happened:
Kalli is a pig, that's all I can say. I was really grateful for her because I cook for two days and usually Blake sits down for no more than 2 minutes and is done. It seems like a waste, but Kalli sat for half an hour or more just eating and eating and eating. She made me so happy. She started out eating the potatoes and after a while ventured over to the pomegranate salad and would not stop eating it. She had three helpings of that stuff. Joe won't even talk about the after-effects of that diaper, it has scarred him.  Getting ready to eat. Wow, I make a lot of white food, there is like no color on that plate! Trying to patiently wait for the food. They really weren't that patient, I had a lot of whining and crying for the food.  Blake just couldn't wait to get started. He begged for a roll and potatoes for over 15 minutes and then when I gave it to him he ate three bites and was done. Seriously grateful for Kalli.  The food, and it was good! We missed our families but we had so much fun with our own little family.

Way to go Kalli! Maybe she will grow up to be one of those tiny girls who wins all of the eating contests. It makes you wonder where they put it.
